Whenever they have a problem they yell after me, and because I tend to be lazy I installed vncserver on their workstation.
Everything works fine, I can start a server on any given display and connect to it using the same display number.
However, for educational purposes I'd like them to see what I'm actually doing and they don't because their active X session is on display :0 and I can only launch/connect to a vncserver from display :1 on.
When I don't specify a display number it launches on :1 and when I try to do
Code: Select all
0 is not taken because of /tmp/.X0-lock Remove this file if there is no X server WS3:0 A VNC server is already running as :0
I used to do that a couple of years ago but then I was connecting to Windows boxen with my linux box, now everyone around here runs Debian - except for my wife who runs FC3 and I can't figure out how to do it .....
